BACK ON: Scientology 'disconnection' billboard OK'd by competitor after Outfront Media bails - 2016-03-08
Phil Jones needed just half a day to rebound from the disappointing news that Outfront Media had rescinded the contract he signed for a three-month, $8,200 billboard in Hollywood that would highlight Scientology's "disconnection" policy.
Phil and his wife Willie are former Church of Scientology members on a mission to raise awareness of the policy, which prevents their grown children, Mike and Emily, from having any contact with them. Both Mike and Emily are Scientology Sea Org employees who work in the Los Angeles area after signing billion-year contracts, promising to work for Scientology lifetime after lifetime.
After raising money with the help from the readers of this website, Phil signed a contract for a billboard with the Los Angeles office of Outfront Media, but on Friday it was rescinded by Outfront's New York office without explanation. Monday morning, Phil confirmed with Outfront that they were not interested in any changes to artwork or other alterations — there was no possibility of revisiting the contract. We've left messages with representatives at both of Outfront's offices, and have received no reply.
